We will be bringing a pair to CF-10
The ones that we will be bring are going to be high gloss automotive black.

(no pricing info as of yet) "ALOT" :lol:

Bob wants brushed, I want painted...
an 8 foot tall piece of brushed aluminum is "a scratch waiting to happen" ( I think )
Paint can be repaired some day. There is NO fixing a brushed finish.

Brushed will give its more of a solid look then paint will. It a way to fool the mind.

let people choose if they want brushed.

Would it keep the cost down?

I'm guessing that's going to be a VERY small part of the cost~

Paint is actually easier, and cheaper in the end. Brushing and anodizing is not cheap, especially big parts.

I like the idea powder coating as it's more durable.
